How to Sponsor

Sponsoring

Our Project I Am Sponsorship Program is unique because it allows YOU to decide how much you would like to commit to monthly. It costs us $150 per month to provide for all the needs of a child. You can choose a child and any amount that fits within your individual budget. Whether your monthly commitment is $5 or $150, your sponsorship is a blessing that helps keep a child off the streets.
